A poorly designed maze of establishments. It is another example of why Governments should not own and develop real estate. the area has an unsafe feeling at night. I would not recommend it to anyone except maybe the mayor or the City Council.

We like to go see movies at CinaMark at the Pike, so we often walk around the Pike. The area have more visitors now and is kind of crying out loud for more stores or restaurants to move in to fill the empty spaces. Walked by over the weekend and saw the H&M is going to open one at the... More

The Pike reminds me of an empty Movie set. Everything is bright and shiny and at first glance has lots to offer but in reality its just an empty set. They have done splendidly advertising this place everywhere but it's mostly empty. There are a few restaurants, a movie theater, a cold stone creamery, and lots of empty store fronts.... More

Walking through The Pike, 60% of shops were empty or closed down. I kept walking and found places that are open and worth visiting - The Pike just served as a convenient shortcut. The foreshore and aquarium are worth visiting. There are a few fast-food chains, however about two-three blocks the other way there are pockets with cafes and bars... More

Hyatt Pike Place was a tasteful hotel for my stay. The neighborhood was nice during daylight, not after dark, to walk around. Limited dining options except chain outlets!

We stayed in this area for three nights. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. There is also a movie theatre. Every time I walked around this area, there never was a crowd. It was like a ghost town most of the time. I felt safe in this area. There is a Ferris wheel and an arcade. It was a... More

Nasty, "touristy" and (even more) unsafe at night . Cannot imagine why anyone would go here. No character, many better places to go.
